Sugarfoot is an American western television series that aired for sixty-nine episodes on ABC from 1957-1961 on Tuesday nights on a "shared" slot basis – rotating with Cheyenne. The Warner Bros. production stars Will Hutchins as Tom Brewster, an Easterner who comes to the Oklahoma Territory to become a lawyer. Jack Elam is cast in occasional episodes as sidekick Toothy Thompson. Brewster was a correspondence-school student whose apparent lack of cowboy skills earned him the nickname "Sugarfoot", a designation below that of a tenderfoot. Sugarfoot had no relation to the 1951 Randolph Scott Western film Sugarfoot aside from the studio owning the title, but its pilot episode was a remake of a 1954 western film called The Boy from Oklahoma, starring Will Rogers, Jr. as Tom Brewster. The pilot and premiere episode, "Brannigan's Boots," was so similar to The Boy from Oklahoma that Sheb Wooley and Slim Pickens reprised their roles from the film; as played by Rogers in the film, Brewster carried no gun, disliked firearms in general and vanquished villains with his roping skills if friendly persuasion failed.
For practical reasons, the pilot altered the character and made Brewster more like the typical Western hero -- reluctant to use guns but able and willing to do so if necessary. That remained his stance throughout the series, the title song mentions that Sugarfoot carries a rifle and a law book. Whenever he enters a saloon, Sugarfoot refuses alcohol and orders sarsaparilla "with a dash of cherry". Sugarfoot was one of the earliest products of the alliance between ABC and the fledgling Warner Brothers Television Department, chaired by William T. Orr. During the same period, other similar programs would appear, including Maverick, Bronco and Colt.45. Hutchins appeared as Sugarfoot in crossover episodes of Cheyenne and Maverick, in an installment of Bronco called "The Yankee Tornado", with Peter Breck as a young Theodore Roosevelt. Jack Kelly appeared as Bart Maverick in the Sugarfoot episode "A Price on His Head." Sugarfoot is only set in Oklahoma. He journeys south of the border into Mexico, numerous episodes are rich in Hispanic culture, with various roles played by Mexican or Mexican-American actors.
The pilot and premiere episode, "Brannigan's Boots", aired on September 17, 1957. In the story line, Tom Brewster is appointed the sheriff of the town of Bluerock by politicians who believe his apparent lack of cowboy skills will render him unable to maintain order after the murder of Sheriff Brannigan. Brewster takes the appointment and symbolically puts on a pair of boots left behind in the sheriff's office. Brannigan's daughter, sees Brewster wearing her father's boots and calls him a "sugarfoot", she questions. "Sugarfoot" successfully finds her father's killer but not without a fictitious incident with Billy the Kid. He soon wins Katie's heart too; the opening episode reveals that Sugarfoot's guns, mailed to him by his mother, were those of his late father. Will Hutchins... Tom'Sugarfoot' BrewsterMerry Anders...

Eric Derwent Walrond was an Afro-Caribbean Harlem Renaissance writer and journalist. Born in Georgetown, the son of a Barbadian mother and a Guyanese father, Walrond was well-travelled, moving early in life to live in Barbados, Panama, New York City, England, he made a lasting contribution to literature, his most famous book being Tropic Death, published in New York City in 1926 when he was 28. In it are collected 10 stories, at least one of, published in small magazines, he had published other short stories prior to this, as well as a number of essays. The scholar Kenneth Ramchand described Walrond's book as a "blistering" work of the imagination; the following extract from his short story "Subjection" illustrates his more lyrical narrative style: A ram-shackle body, dark in the ungentle spots exposing it, jogged and fell at the tip of a white bludgeon. Forced a dent in the crisp caked earth. An isolated ear lay limp and juicy, like some exhausted leaf or flower, half joined to the tree whence it sprang.
Only the sticky milk flooding it was crimson, crimsoning the earth. Much of the dialogue between Walrond's characters is written in dialect, using the many different tongues loosely centred on the English language to portray the diversity of characters associated with the pan-Caribbean diaspora. Eric Walrond was born in British Guiana, to a Barbadian mother and a Guyanese father; when Eric was aged eight, his father left, he moved with his mother, Ruth, to live with relatives in Barbados, where he attended St. Stephen's Boys' School, before moving to Panama at the time when the Panama Canal was being constructed.
